A team-up between Arsenal legends Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp would be the perfect replacement for Arsene Wenger, Sol Campbell has told talkSPORT.

The Gunners are searching for a new manager for the first time in 22 years after 68-year-old Wenger revealed he will leave the club at the end of the season.

A host of top coaches have been linked with the job, including the likes of former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and Germany head coach Joachim Low.

But Campbell believes former team-mates Vieira and Bergkamp would be ideal choices to succeed Wenger in the Emirates hotseat.

Former Gunners captain Vieira is currently manager of MLS side New York City FC, while Bergkamp was assistant coach at former club Ajax before leaving in 2017.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, former Arsenal and England defender Campbell said: “I think there should be an important push to get guys who have done really well for Arsenal back into the club.

“Theres talk about Patrick Vieira… I think a double act between Patrick and Dennis Bergkamp – theyre best of mates, why not?

“It would be perfect. Having those two guys at the helm, I think that could be a really good combination.

“There are people like Tony Adams as well…

“There are managers who can come in, but there are also people from within the club who can be promoted, so youve got to look at all the options.”
